Cactus Monday: Moleskine time at the Desert Botanical Garden

Lunch with an artist friend always seems to end up with a drawing session or some sort of creative process at the end of the day.  I love that!  Annie over at Chaos in color and I, went out for some good local Mexican food and decided to jet off to the garden and we stayed until twilight.  Twilight in the desert is my absolute favorite time of day to capture in art form, everything is so beautifully illuminated in amethyst hues, bouncing off of the green cacti.  I love that place, can't get enough of it.  Above is the sketch I did on location.  Another good reason to always have my moleskine and watercolors on hand and ready to go in my purse!

This is beautiful, Cynthia! It reminds me so much of my visits to Tucson. You've called forth a bit of nostalgia with a wonderfully painted watercolor. Thanks!
